Don’t Buy a Boat® – Join the Club!


Club Membership vs. Boat Ownership

There are a number of reasons why it makes more sense to join Nautical Boat Club than to own your own boat.

In addition to the superior variety, service, and perks you get as a Nautical Boat Club® member, you also spend much less time and energy on upkeep, as well as way less money! The cost to be a Member of Nautical Boat Club® is about one-third the cost of owning your own boat.

The bottom line? Belonging to a Boating Country Club® is a better deal, with a bonus “no-hassle” appeal!

"I love being part of the Lake Murray Boat Club Family. The managers and crew are excellent."

"My primary purpose for pursuing the Lake Murray Boat Club (LMBC) was to create memories of Lake fun for my kids (ages 3, 5, 7). It has proven to be a great investment in them. LMBC provides top of the line boating options, all the swim-fun equipment, & has continue to 'guide' me in the process of making the most of my membership. Compared to the expense & hassle of owning 1 boat, I'm able to enjoy many different kinds of boats! Even during cooler weather, we've enjoyed cruising the lake & docking at places to explore. All of the staff are quite accommodating & friendly. My kids have already become a little partial to some of the dock staff (my 3-yr old daughter is always asking for Carson lol). I would recommend LMBC to anyone. Be sure to check out all the information on their website, as well as pics of the boats available -- they really are those boats!! :)"

"Our experience with the Lake Murray Boat Club has been 5 stars so far. Our largest concern was availability of boats when we wanted them and so far we’ve had lots of success! The boats are all extremely well kept and the convenience of the club has been even better than we anticipated. There’s nothing like parking at the marina and being on the water a mere minutes later. The entire staff is extremely professional and super helpful for our novice boater family. We’re looking forward to many years of fun on the lake!"

- Robert

"Lake Murray Boat Club is the best decision my husband and I ever made (besides getting married)! The club makes it easy to enjoy Lake Murray, without the hassle of boat ownership, and the cost is very reasonable. After talking with Lynne and Jon, we were very impressed with the business model and ease of the relationship between the club and its members. The dock hands are friendly and ready to assist, and there is always a helping hand back at the dock in case we need it. The security of knowing that we aren't on our own out there is very nice. The kids are all satisfied with the selection of water toys. We give Lake Murray Boat Club 5 stars!!"

"We have been members for about 2 years and we really love the valet boating concept . The boats are always clean and ready to go and I don’t have to clean them! We wondered if we could get a boat when we wanted it....since we have to share the boats with others. We may not get our first choice, but we always get a great boat with little notice. We love these guys....especially Tony, Shane and Mary!"

"Excited to join the Boat club and start exploring Lake Murray. Living at the lake and having the marina 10 minutes away is awesome. This lets us enjoy boating without the upkeep and expense of owning a boat. We just call ahead to the marina, walk up the dock to our fully fueled reserved boat, pick up our water toys and we’re off in 15 minutes. The staff has been super friendly and take care of everything. Doug and Leslie 2019 members"

"The Boats are great, Lake Murray is great and the folks at Lake Murray Boat Club bring it all together. To think I ever thought about buying a boat! Whew....that was a close one!"

- Chuck

"Great atmosphere and wonderful customer service! The staff is polite and professional, and the boats and equipment are immaculate and well maintained. I would highly recommend joining for anyone before they decide to go and purchase their boat. All the fun and enjoyment without the cleanup, maintenance, or storage part of boat ownership."

- Brian

"We have been members now for several years and have loved every moment. The staff is very helpful, the boats are immaculate, and the memories we make each summer are priceless! We owned our boat but now prefer the ability to use a variety of boats without ever having to deal with maintenance. I recommend this club to all my friends!"
